We understand that it's hard to find a medical centre open late at night or over the weekend, and waiting in the Emergency Department for a long period of time is not the ideal situation...  So that's why we're here for you, "when you need us the most".

Australian After Hours Doctors provides a BULK BILLING home visiting doctor service.  We are an Approved Accredited Medical Deputising Service, which works alongside GP clinics by supporting them in providing quality healthcare outside their operating hours.

How To Arrange A Visit

When we receive an After Hours call, our experienced Call Centre Staff will triage the call for urgency and arrange one of our highly qualified doctors to visit you in your home.

We attempt to see all patients within three hours of accepting the call.

When you call to arrange a home visit please be ready to provide the Call Centre Operator your:

  • Full Name

After each home visit, Australian After Hours Doctors send through a report to your regular GP to keep them up-to-date with your health and allow them to follow up with routine care.

We accept and bulk bill for those with

Medicare / DVA Cards

Students with Bupa OSHC, OSHC Worldcare,

NIB OSHC and Medibank OSHC Policies
